Adnan, our waiter that night, did everything to put a smile on our faces. He has been working at Chili's for the last decade after all... he breathes Chili's and he's proud of it. We were pampered while spending a memorable night of fun and enjoyment. To accompany our dinner, what else but a Margarita? I remembered the last experience and it was a total mess. A soggy undrinkable margarita; I'm not sure if the bartender has been changed, but tonight's was as good as the one I enjoy at Habana in Jounieh. An intense taste, without being too sweet or too alcoholic and a beautiful color with a pleasant aftertaste that accompanies you during dinner.
My recommendation: Ask for a basket of chips and enjoy their crunch. Dip them into the sauce and feel the earthquake
The unacceptable: The menus! Please change the menus. They are unacceptable. It's not up to standard to see papers torn apart this way. In Arabic; "3ayb".
Chili's, the last international diner to survive the Lebanese crisis, is still a place I'll consider for my "no-calorie-count" meals. I hope and wish the quality remains, as it is and even better.
